When you subscribed to the Iris-l you received back a welcome message with the
SUBSCRIBE IRIS-L <your name>
The welcome message has all sorts of nifty little instructions on
how to use the reflector INCLUDING how to set it to digest and how to
To send a command to the LISTSERV program (for example,
if you want to be dropped from the list), send email to:
In the body of your message, you must type a proper command
for the program. A few common commands are listed here:
SUBSCRIBE IRIS-L <yourname>
adds your name and email address to this mailing list
drops you from the list (do not add your name; only these
two words are needed)
gives you a list of everyone currently on the list
SET IRIS-L MAIL DIGEST
instructs the list processor to send you periodic digests
of the list messages, rather than each one individually
as it is posted
SET IRIS-L MAIL ACK
returns to normal (non-digest) mode
gives you a list of other LISTSERV commands
Maybe this is a little blunt, and I am sure I will get some flames back, but
take a little pity on Tom who (with lots of support form others) put all this
together and went to the trouble of generating the introduction message so you
would have the knowledge to use the list. RTM
If you discarded the message without reading it, you can find it under Iris-L
